HC Deb 16 July 1908 vol 192 c1066
SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)

To ask the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the Committee appointed by the Viceroy to inquire into complaints made by a number of officers on the general cadre of the Political Department, in respect of their position under the reorganisation scheme, will also be empowered to consider the complaints of the military officers in the Bombay Political Department as to their position and prospects.

(Answered by Mr. Buchanan.) The Secretary of State has no information beyond that which has appeared in the Press as to the Committee referred to. As regards the Bombay Political Department, I understand that the Government of Bombay will shortly submit proposals for improving the position of military officers of the Department.
